IELTS General Training Writing Task 1 Letter Writing Answer

Dear John and Sarah,

I hope everybody there is well and you weren’t affected to badly by the bad weather. I'd just like to thank you both again for the opportunity you gave me to work on the project in Yokohama and the time you spent helping me. It was a very interesting 6 months for me and I learned a lot, as well as making good friends with everyone else on the project team.

It’s good to be back home, but I still miss you all and it is difficult adjusting to life here again, things are so different. I start back at university again next week so I will be busy with academic projects soon, but I’m looking forward to it and hopefully I’ll be able to use some of the knowledge I gained while I was working with you.

I know you would both like to visit my country so I’d like to invite you over when the project is finished. Maybe we could spend some time together travelling around this part of the country which is very beautiful, I’m sure you’d both love it.

I hope to hear from you soon,

Best regards
